Should I Buy Shell Stock? SHEL Pros and Cons Explained


Here are some ways that investors could benefit from investing in Shell plc:

  • Shell recently increased its dividend from $0.66 to $0.688, indicating a strong commitment to rewarding shareholders with a higher yield.
  • With a P/E ratio of 13.21, Shell's stock is considered undervalued compared to industry peers, potentially offering a good entry point for investors.
  • Analysts have set a consensus target price of $66.50 for Shell, suggesting potential for stock price appreciation in the near future.
  • Shell has a market cap of $228.77 billion, indicating the company's size and stability in the market.
  • Shell's beta of 0.59 implies that the stock is less volatile than the overall market, providing a level of stability for risk-averse investors.


Investors should be bearish about investing in Shell plc for these reasons:

  • Shell's PEG ratio of 1.86 suggests that the stock may be overvalued relative to its earnings growth potential, which could limit future returns.
  • While the dividend yield is attractive at 3.84%, the payout ratio of 50.74% indicates that a significant portion of earnings is being distributed as dividends, potentially limiting reinvestment for growth.
  • Shell's 52-week high of $74.61 may indicate that the stock is currently trading near its peak, posing a risk of a price correction in the short term.
  • As an energy company, Shell is exposed to fluctuations in oil and gas prices, which can impact its profitability and stock performance.
  • Investors should consider the impact of environmental regulations and the global shift towards renewable energy on Shell's long-term sustainability and growth prospects.
